browser at the URL of your document root. Heel is built using
Rack(http://rack.rubyforge.org) and Thin

Heel is a small static web server for use when you need a quick web
server for a directory. Heel is built using Rack and Thin. Beyond
just serving up webpages, heel uses an ERB template and famfamfam
icons to create useful index pages. And to make things even easier it
launches your browser for you so no cut and paste necessary.
